    2 Beardies in Need (Delaware) I saw this while cruising Craigslist this morning. Those babies look just awful. I want to go scoop them up right now and bring them home to some good food, heat, UV, and LOTS more space... but I don't have the money to buy the dragons and a...

    Eye bulging & closing

    Mango is 6 yrs. old and has always been in great health. Today I put in a new UV bulb to replace his old one and switched his heat bulbs to a higher wattage for winter and suddenly he's intermittently basking with his eyes closed and bulging. I know eye bulging is normal during shedding or if...

    Your Dream Viv

    I thought it would be fun to discuss our dream vivs. If money, space, maintenance etc. were no object, what type of home would you create for your beardie(s)?

    Giant Mealworms vs. Super Mealworms

    So, I was in our local fish/reptile store a few weeks ago looking for Superworms and saw that they have something called "Super Mealworms." Now, I've heard of "Giant Mealworms" and from my understanding they are NOT a good feeder. However, are the "Super Mealworms" the same as a Superworm...

    What are you getting your Beardie Babies for Christmas?

    I have a feeling I'm not the only one on here who buys their pets Christmas gifts. :mrgreen: So, what are you getting your scaly babies this year? I just went on a bit of a shopping spree for Mango. :shock: Just in the last week I've bought him a digital scale, a Multi Vitamin with...

    Betadine bath safe during shed?

    Over the weekend I noticed 3 or 4 bright red dots under Mango's beard then, a few hours later they were gone. I couldn't find them on his body anywhere but my assumption is that they were mites and have migrated under his scales somewhere. :angry5: Would there be any other explanation or...

    Just wondering if anyone has fed their baby's persimmon? I have tons of them right now and wondered if they would be safe for my guy. By the way, I do have the Beautiful Dragon list pinned to my fridge at all times so I know it's not on there. Thanks!

    Anybody have beardies who don't brumate?

    Mango is about 3 1/2 yrs. old and healthy as a horse but has never brumated. Anybody else experience this? Is it common?

    HELP!!! (roaches)

    Once before I started a Dubia colony and had great success with it. Unfortunately, I left them out in the garage over the winter and they all died. I just got a new shipment in the mail today to get another colony started. They look great, however, I seem to have some rather precocious nymphs...

    Cat tree/perch

    I was just wondering if anyone used a cat tree or cat window perch for their beardies? I'm thinking of picking one up for Mango but wondered what the consensus was on whether they seem to enjoy them or not before shelling out the money. Also, does the carpet offer enough traction to keep them...

    Hi, I'm Crissy and have been lurking here on and off for awhile now. I was turned on to lizards about 2 yrs. ago when my brother gave me his pet water dragon when he couldn't care for him any longer. Ever since I was little I've had the WORST phobia of snakes and lizards always seemed to...
